Printing/Downloading Restrictions

Oxford limits printing saving and downloading of its ebooks to a chapter pages at a time and notes that printing is also restricted by Copyright law.

Oxford's AVL Page

I would not recommend using Oxford's search function as it searches all of Oxford's books and you cannot limit only to the ones to which we have access. I would instead use the site Oxford developed specifically for the Alabama Virtual Library. This page lists only the books the AVL purchased.

Oxford for AVL


If you must search Oxford, remember that you will have access to only a few titles in the results list and that list cannot be limited to only titles the Marx Library owns.
